The US supreme court has allowed the gov't to withold federal
grant money from public libraries that refuse to install porn filters
on publicly accessible computers.
http://www.statesman.com/nationworld...cotus_cox.htmlThe ruling by Chief Justice William Rehnquist pointed out that since libraries have traditionally excluded pornography from their collections, Congress could "reasonably impose a parallel limitation on its Internet assistance programs."
The ruling also says that librarians can easily disable the software filter at request, so the filter doesn't unnecessarily limit an adult's access.
I've always felt that those who pay the bills should have final say.
So what's so bad about the library putting a filter on their machines?
I do as I please with mine.
